We chose a Gloucestershire based solicitor for our conveyancing in Gloucestershire today. Upon checking the Terms I notewe are on the hook for costs even where the transaction does not complete. Should I ditch them and appoint a web based lawyer promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Gloucestershire?
Generally there is a compromise along the lines that if "No Sale No Fee" is advertised then the fee levels will generally be more expensive to neutralise the cases that do not proceed. You should be mindful that these deals tend not to cover expenditure such as Gloucestershire conveyancing search expenses.

We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the agent has warned us that the seller will only proceed if we appoint their preferred lawyers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. We would rather use a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Gloucestershire
We suspect that the seller is not behind this demand. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to appoint your preferred Gloucestershire conveyancing firm - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by corporate headquarters.
There are only Sixty One years remaining on my flat in Gloucestershire. I am keen to extend my lease but my freeholder is can not be found. What options are available to me?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be granted an extra 90 years by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to find the freeholder. On the whole a specialist may be helpful to conduct investigations and prepare an expert document to be used as evidence that the landlord is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a property lawyer in relation to proving the landlord’s absence and the application to the County Court overseeing Gloucestershire.
I inherited a basement flat in Gloucestershire, conveyancing having been completed 3 years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease?

You have 68 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as legals.
The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
